    LE ammo. It's specifically designed for excessive penetration.

    Critical Defense is designed for self/home defense. :)

    i use the Hornady XTP line of ammo with good results. Hornady makes very good ammo, and though i haven't used that particular type, i suspect it will work just fine for what it's designed for.

    I have shot the Critical Duty and use it in several ccw pistols. Very good ammo that packs one heck of a whallop. Give it a try and see what you think. Good luck!!

    Cool. Care to share the results and which factors that the duty ammo outperformed the defense line in? I like to get good ammo data from folks who have tried several different types.

    I too am curious why you prefer the duty to the defense.

    The duty ammo is specifically designed for excessive penetration for LE. You aren't going to be shooting through car doors or barricades.

    Although critical duty is not available in any caliber I use, it would be nice to be able to penetrate the walls and doors of my home if necessary. The wife and I together of course. Walls and doors give the bg a false sense of security. You can have a parking lot situation as well.

    I prefer duty because I want to be ready for any situation. Don't get me wrong defense is a good round to. Everyone has there own preference.
